If you see my Meetup.com profile, I am listed as an organizer of the MBS WordPress Meetup group (MBS = Midland, Bay City, Saginaw). But the “actual” organizer there is Nick, who is my coworker at Automattic.
Anyways, he posted that he’s planning the first meetup at the end of March. If you know anyone around there who may be interested, please help spread the word.
And if there are any friends or families up there you visit, you might want to check the MBS WordPress Meetup calendar (feeds are available too) to see if they have any meetup when you are nearby.
